If looks could kill, Justice would have murdered this guard many times over. Despite his lead over the two first years, he was not the first one through the gate. You see, explosive rounds have this nasty habit of sending debris and shrapnel in all directions after the impact. Justice had managed to dodge getting hit directly, but a particularly sharp piece of rock flew into his face, leaving a deep gash. If the blood had not flown so quickly, it would certainly be possible to see his cheekbone.

Justice looked down as his white gloves turned a deep shade of red with the flow of blood. Even if there was a way for his aura to quickly stem the blood flow, that was never going to wash out. Justice maintained eye contact with the guard as he recalled his weapon, with the Razor flying over the wall and attaching to reform his walking stick. Justice extended his semblance, looking for someone to copy from to get this rage out of his system.

Camelia ran through the gate at beyond sprinting speed, releasing her semblance on Rory as soon as he stepped past the gate as well. She huffed and puffed, bent over, trying to get air back into her lungs, tired from the furious pace as well as from semblance use, albeit far less significantly so. There'd been a kerfuffle or two - she went past a dissolving corpse as well as varied metallic debris near the wall - as well as another grenade right behind her. Not only did it singe her legs, she was pretty sure she'd caught several pieces of shrapnel with her Aura. This Gaud needed to learn to aim better. Friendly fire was not cool.

After starting to feel like oxygen was being carried in her bloodstream again, she straightened back up, a drop of sweat running down from her right temple. Well, they were definitely in, at least. Rory seemed mostly fine, judging by his behavior. "You're welcome, buddy. It was that or running on your own steam, anyway..." She looked at the other people nearby - a guard and the occasional townsfolk - before her sight landed on Justice. Worry tainting her voice a bit, she asked "...Hey, Justice, you okay? What happened?" This was beyond odd, shouldn't his Aura have prevented injuries like that?

Calen nodded politely in response to Donna request, the conflict seemingly ended before it could truly begin. Calen filed away the reluctance to continue their altercation for future use, although there seemed to be an increasing tension in the air no one was willing for it to devolve into a full fight. Well no one besides Calen that is but even his limited understanding of Grimm made him aware that the negative emotions he would inevitably inflict could attract more of the creatures to the still recovering town. 'Of course Master Donna we will make our way over, I'm sure you are needed else were so take care.' Calen responded moving his arm from from Cami's wrist to around her shoulder and lead her away. 'I agree, we should get moving.' Calen whispered under his breath as he waved goodbye to Donna with his open arm.

Calen's scroll started ringing again and he was quick to answer as Rory continued to explain the situation the rest of the team was dealing with. 'Things are getting a bit rough in Vona, Donna is getting more and more insistent, I'll see what I can do to get a ride but it might not be possible. I don't want to be seen and the last thing this town needs is people chasing after us leaving it even less defended. Take care and I'll call back when I have more of a plan.' Calen kept his voice low unsure if Donna or someone else would be following him.

Not exactly up to date with the latest hot wiring techniques and unless Calen seriously misjudged Cami neither was her which meant stealing a vehicle would be difficult. And he didn't have enough lien on hand to buy one out right so although he would keep an eye out if an opportunity presented itself his mind turned to the second best option. A horse. Cheaper, quiter and probably a bit faster given the relationship between the three towns meant that the roads might not be well maintained. Passing on his plan to Cami still under his breath the two hopefully set about searching for a way out of this increasingly hostile town.

Anov, compared to Vona the village was bliss. Men and women walked about without a care, children played in the streets chasing each other around, and guards with modern looking rifles sat atop towers pretending to be awake. A farm, a massive expanse of land was entirely dedicated to agriculture; fruits and vegetables of all size and variety, animals miling about minding their business, and their farmers respectively tending to the very life their friends and families would have for the day's meal. There was nothing really negative to be considered from a first look about the village.

     "You again!? *chew *chew I told you the last time and my answer hasn't changed!" the guard had returned, accompanied by a short and very portly man. In his hands he carried a large bowl with a comically overfilled pile of rice, his other hand was shoveling away with his bare hands at the pile and sending it to his mouth. His clothes were rather ordinary, nothing really indicated him as a leader or anyone important. A cross stitched leather vest, regular work pants, and a pair of warhammers connected by a chain dangled at his waist. His head was balding and his multiple chins expressed annoyance in Gaud's direction.

"They demand for life in exchange for nothing!*chew *chew The point of a trade is for both sides to barter equally, you can tell them the past is irrelevant to the current situation!" the plump man said in between bites, sending projectile crumbs in Gaud's face as he talked. Gaud simply tilted her hat over head so nothing would directly hit her face, she seemed ready for this occurence as she pre emptively covered her face as she was addressed. "The Grimm will soon be handled, after that there should no need for a stockpile and you can lift the embargo" Gaud replied plainly. "With what you and this army?" he said suddenly taking notice of the trio "They look rather battered from the Misted Woods! On top of that they're just a bunch of kids,is a single team really enough to clear the mist?" he examined Justice and Rory's wounds and his gaze ended on Camelia, more specifically an area below her neck, despite the area covered in armor. "Well little lady it wouldn't do to hurt that cute little face of yours! I am village Master Carafe Vita. Do you and your comrades ,but mostly just you, care for some nourishment and rest for the night?" he gestured to Camelia with his bowl of rice extended out to her as if offering her to dig in, obvious lechery could be heard behind the voice.



"Oh I know the perfect place to go!"hearing Calen's requirement for a mode of transportation, she lead Calen off to a corner of the village, not far from the main gate they came in from. Cami came to a stop to the entrance of an open stable with a row of horses, deeper inside a number of wagons could be seen, though the dust suggested they havent been used recently. "I talked to the stable master here and he said the horses haven't been used for a while since the villages stopped trading with each other, they wouldn't notice if one were to go missing would they?" she subtley suggested as she started stroking the mane of the nearest horse.

'I've always wanted to ride off into the sunset with a beautiful woman, it's not quite the right time and although clearly potent work horses they aren't as graceful as I had in mind but they'll do.' Calen responded quietly but with a wide grin plastered across his face, fun was back on the table. Seeing that the two weren't bothered when Cami walked straight up to one of the horses Calen decided that speed was likely to be their ally here more than subtly. Still taking every precaution available; waiting until people were looking away, explaining Cami loved horses and just wanted to pat one and jsut engaging in simple conversation, anything the dismiss the suspicions that they were about to commit horse theft. Isolating the two sleekest horses Calen made a show of teaching Cami how to saddle and mount the creatures as an excuse to mount up.

Leading them around the pen a few times until the workers surrounding them lost interest Calen flicked the gate open and gestured for Cami to ride on ahead. Calen would stay behind for a few moments and try to secure the pen shut by tying the gate closes with tight leathers. Satisfied it would give them a reasonable head start Calen reared his horse up and let out a loud wallop before racing after Cami. Some basic geography as well as survival skills kept the two on generally the same right path as they raced towards Anov, moving just slow enough to ensure the horses didn't lather.

'I've been meaning to ask Miss Unis, is there a reason why you won't play without Miss Gaud. I'm sure she has heard you play numerous times before and would forgive one concert given the circumstances.' Calen remarked as they rode away from Vona. Calen was happy about how the situation had unfolded, the adrenaline shooting through his veins and he still smiled as he imagined the the village master's face , but this whole issue seemed to have been able to be solved easily.

Anov couldn't have been more different from Vona, as near as Rory could tell. Vona had an air of desperation about it, a bitter and stubborn determination that brought to mind plants growing up through cracks in the concrete... Anov may as well have been a rich-soil flower bed by contrast. The people seemed content and, if Carafe was any indication, well fed, but that was to be expected when a village was both fully enclosed and self-sufficient for food. Still, Rory didn't really feel any more at ease here than he did in Vona, regardless of the chief's generosity. The persistent feeling of something being off was the one thing Anov and Vona definitely shared.

Still, the fact that this village's chief liked to run his mouth so much was advantageous. As painful as it was to listen to him chew with his mouth open, the shield fighter learned more about the situation from the chief's offhand comments than he'd been able to get out of the chief of Vona. Gaud had already mentioned that conflicts here involved both fighting and a bitter trade dispute, but from here he could start to see the outlines of how that came to be. Anov was the region's bread basket, its main source of food; Vona, then, seemed the village best outfitted with warriors and weapons. What Navo contributed he could only guess at, but it seemed abundantly clear that these three communities each had something the others needed... and weren't willing to trade away lightly.

The thought that Anov might be slowly starving out the other two -- well aware that they were doing so, at that -- put Rory instantly in a sour frame of mind. Carafe's shameless comments towards Camelia didn't help either. He kept an eye on her to see how she responded, ready to back up however she chose to handle this double-chinned lech.
